After graduation, Dan changed his residence to New York City where he became Director of Music and Organist at Church of St. Stephen of Hungary. Soon after, a research and development position in the Electronic Keyboard Division of the Yamaha Communication Center preempted him from working in the church music field, however by 1989 he was "back at the console."
Dan was Assistant Organist at Church of the Holy Family, the United Nations Parish, from 1992 until 1994. In 1994, he became Interim Director of Music and Organist at St. Joseph's Church in Greenwich Village. Since 1995, he has been Organist at Third Church of Christ, Scientist, located at 63rd Street and Park Avenue. Services are on Wednesdays at 7:30 P.M., and Sundays at 11:00 A.M. and 4:30 P.M.
In 1993, Dan began performing in recital regularly. He has appeared in New York City on the recital series of Saint Thomas Church Fifth Avenue, Saint Peter's Church, Grace Church, and St. Luke's Lutheran Church. Dan has also appeared on the Wondrous Wednesdays organ recital series at Union Chapel, Oak Bluffs, on Martha's Vineyard. March 29, 2001, he will appear in recital at St. Paul's Chapel, Columbia University, York City.
Dan has written and recorded classical, rock, easy listening, and experimental music. In addition to J.S. Bach, his influences/idols include Keith Emerson, Eddie Van Halen, Elton John, and Jean-Michel Jarre.
